As Peter Angelos' talks to buy and move the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Baltimore continue, one of three trustees brokering the team has hinted the group may choose to keep the franchise another year.Steve Story, one of the three trustees appointed by late owner Hugh Culverhouse to operate the team, said it is not the trustees' intent to keep the team any longer but it is a "real possibility.""We tried to make that clear at the beginning to take away some of the fear. That's a real possibility, and the further it goes, the more likely it is," Story said before Saturday's season-ending game in Florida, according to the St. Petersburg Times.
